The last decades of globalization have shown profound changes in production of goods and services and a shift towards financial capitalism. These developments have contributed to growing output and wealth, at the same time posing significant challenges to the achievement of social justice and a fair globalization for all – decent work. The fruits of the globalization process are not equitably distributed and too many are left behind.
This report aims to stimulate international discussion on possible approaches, means and avenues to promote the goal of decent work for all. It gives a brief review of the consequences of globalization for working conditions, explains the Decent Work Agenda and the strategies of main actors, and winds up with some reflections on the options and pathways for advancement of the Agenda.
